Suren Sooklal has been appointed MTN’s chief business risk officer, the company said on Thursday.
Sooklal would establish and implement a risk management framework for the cellphone operator, it said.
“Sooklal has an extensive 34-year track record, working with clients in the public and private sector, locally and internationally,” MTN Group president and CEO Sifiso Dabengwa said in a statement.
Sooklal joined the company from PricewaterhouseCoopers, where he worked for 12 years. He replaces Shauket Fakie, who was chief business risk officer for eight years and would retire this month.
